Based on his dancing, I wasn't too surprised he left. Once Kelly was called in jeopardy, I would have bet money she was leaving. I commented just before they were announced safe that Val seemed to know they were going. Of course, he has yet to make it to week 4. Once Helio and Joey were announced in the bottom 2, I figured it could go either way. When Tom was talking to Helio, I felt like Helio thought he was leaving, based on what he was saying.
The judges seemed particularly harsh to Joey on Monday, more so than other couples. Especially Len. I felt like him reading down the list of everything that was wrong was like a Simon Cowell moment. Joey's level of dance was down, I thought, from his previous season, but he was entertaining this week. I hope Kym gets to last longer next season. Plus, he went out with class and I always love when they thank their partners.
